When it comes to guardian angels, most people think of them as beings with supernatural power and affection. While it is true that guardian angels do have these qualities, they are also so much more.

Guardian angels are beings of love and light who have been sent to us from the Divine realms to help us through our journey here on earth.

Crochet Angel Gnome Free Pattern

Crochet Terms: This pattern is written in US crochet terms!

Crochet Construction: We will crochet the Angel gnome in one piece. This means we will start with the head and body! Afterward, we will crochet the remaining pieces such as hands, hair, and wings!

Crochet technique: The Angel gnome is crocheted in continuous rounds! It means that at the end of each round we will not join it with slip stitch. We will continue working over the first stitch!

Also, to have a more neat crochet I prefer to use the yarn under method for my amigurumis. This way your stitches will be tighter and less holes between them!

PRO TIP: Use a stitch marker to mark your first stitch! It will prevent you from losing the count of each round!

Stuffing your gnome: Use fiberfill to stuff your gnome. When you reach the bottom part start stuffing from around the body leaving a hole in the center. That will help shape your gnome better! Stuff the center in the end!

PRO TIP: Do not overstuff your bottom! It will make your base pop out and the gnome will not stay in place!

How to join your gnome parts- assembly:

Use some safety pins to secure them before sewing. Sew them when you like the placement.

  1. Sew the nose onto the body right below the brim.
  2. Place and sew the hair on both sides of the nose. Leave 2 stitches between the nose and the curls.
  3. Sew the skirt around the middle of the body. First, sew both ends together and then secure the skirt around the body from a few places.

How to sew the hands:

First option- praying angel

If you crocheted the original version of the hands (not the long ones) sew the hands below the hair and then attach them to one other with a tapestry needle.

Second Option: If you have made the longer hands and want a prayer angel.

Sew the hands right after the hair and join them in the middle again.

How to attach the halo:

Place the halo at the back of the hat and secure it with a safety pin. Take a tapestry needle and the white color yarn and sew around it to attach.

How to attach the angel wings:

Take your wings and place them on the back of your gnome. One of the wings will be on the right side facing you and the second wrong side facing you.

Here you have two options:

Option 1: Place them horizontally with the pointy part pointing towards both sides.

Option 2: Place the wings vertically with the pointy part pointing downward.
